Welcome to The International Hypnosis Research Institute Web site. Our intention is to support and promote the further worldwide integration of comprehensive evidence-based research and clinical hypnotherapy with mainstream mental health, medicine, and coaching. We do so by disseminating, supporting, and conducting research, providing professional level education, advocating increased level of practitioner competency, and supporting the viability and success of clinical practitioners. Although currently over 80% of our membership is comprised of mental health practitioners, we fully recognize the role, support, involvement, and needs of those in the medical and coaching fields. This site is not intended as a source of medical or psychological advice. Tim Brunson, PhD

Life Matters Most

by Joyce-Anne Locking

If you had to name the most valuable thing in your life at this moment, you may come up with all sorts of different answers. You may name loved ones, friendships or material things such as cars, houses or bank accounts. Perhaps you might think of objects of art, private yachts, or summer get aways. Some may name pets, pianos or possessions.

The truth of the matter is, our most valuable possession is our next breath, because without it, nothing else would matter to us at all. There is great power in the momentum of one breath. You can use a breath to begin to fill a balloon, begin to tell a story or, actually, to begin anything at all. It just depends how you put it to use. The use of your own breath can also hold fantastic healing powers and can be used to eliminate pain in your own body.

By focusing on your breathing you can get yourself into a state of calm. Then by concentrating on aiming the breath into the centre of any pain you may be experiencing in your body, you can begin to fill the pain pocket with the light of your own breath and, in so doing, push the pain outside of your personal space, thereby eliminating it.

Breathing can be used to lower blood pressure as well. By breathing in, to the count of seven, hold that breath to the count of seven, then slowly realease it to the count of seven, you can calm yourself and lower your blood pressure by repeating this process four times. Meditation can eliminate headaches, remove stress and heal the body just by learning to focus on your own breathing.

Just think, we are nothing without our next breath, and we can begin to change anything about our situation with the power of our next breath.

Breathing is the most important potential in our lives. Learn to use your inbred, natural power to become the person you were created to be. Then you will possess the greatest wealth available to mankind.
